WordPress themes are fun and it is interesting to have a new look to your blogs by constantly looking out for a clean, fast loading, wordpress theme that has pleasing appearance as well.
Another major factor that is missed out usually when finalizing a theme is the SEO friendly options the theme has inbuilt.
There are pretty good paid SEO friendly themes out, but off late using them I found out they are no different from free wordpress themes that are available in wordpress.org directory.
1. Pagelines theme:
Pagelines is one of the premium wordpress theme out there, but very few know of its free version available which is as good as the paid one.
Pagelines theme free version can be downloaded form wordpress.org directory from below link.
2. Twenty ten:
Twenty ten used to be the default wordpress theme along with wordpress install until Twenty eleven replaced it, Twenty twelve is in the beta now. but Twenty ten has some clean SEO friendly layouts which makes it a good free SEO theme to consider.
3. Thematic wordpress Theme:
Thematic is more of a framework where you can build your own child themes and customization. But still with no customizations and default options the theme looks like a perfect minimalistic wordpress SEO friendly theme.
More options can be confusing, instead of a constant hunt for best wordpress themes trying the three free themes above and working on content and ranking your blogs will add more to your bottomline. Not to mention the above listed themes do outperform some of the paid themes out there.
